“If the sky should fall into the sea
And the stars fade all around me
For the times that we have known here
I will sing a hymn to love
We have lived and dreamed, we two alone
In a world that seemed our very own
With it’s memory ever grateful
Just for you, I’ll sing a hymn to love
I remember each embrace
The smile that lights your face
And my heart begins to sing
Your arms, the hands secure
Your eyes that said, ‘Be sure’
And my heart begins to sing.”
